Flames of Freedom – 1776 Colonial Gothic Horror Roleplaying [Kickstarter]

“It is the dawn of the American Revolutionary War of 1776. A tangled web of conspiracy spans North America. In the war for survival, it does not matter what your creed, color, culture or gender is – all stand together. Thomas Paine’s Common Sense is held aloft in every Rebel patriot’s hand, as they take up arms against the British Empire. But as the Revolution has begun, something far more mysterious stirs.”

If you like horror, alternative history, conspiracy, and the potential for sedition in your roleplaying games then Andrews McMeel Publishing just might have a Kickstarter campaign for you. Launching on the 5th of October, Flames of Freedom is a powered by Zweihander game of gothic horror. Promising grim and perilous roleplaying, this is your chance to either accept your lot or take arms and fight. Whether destined for greatness or death, at least you’ll die a hero…

You can currently check out the preamble over at DrivethruRPG, and on top of this, when the Kickstarter drops, a free quick-start will also be made available. Clocking in at 61 pages, we’ll get a chance to see more of the rules, particularly useful for those of you not familiar with Zweihander, as well as a full adventure. This will no doubt help firmly establish the tone and feel of the setting whilst giving players both old and new a chance to test out what they can be pledging for. I’ll be sure to cast my beady eyes over this and pop up my thoughts and reviews as soon as I’ve had time to digest the contents!
